What types of repairs can be done?

How can I tell if my eyeglass frames are titanium?
Some frames will state "titanium" directly on them. You may also check with your doctor or the shop where you purchased your frames. We will test the frames when they arrive in our repair center to confirm the metal type. If you selected a standard repair, and your frames are titanium, we will call you to confirm that it is ok to move forward with the repair.
When will my eyeglasses be ready?
For walk-in eyeglass repairs we usually can repair your glasses the same day. We can give you an exact estimate when you drop off your glasses. For mail-in repairs typical repairs are done in one business day and mailed back the next day.
How should I pack my glasses for mail-in eyeglass repair?
It's best to pack your glasses in their eyeglass case, tissue, bubble wrap or lens cleaning cloths. Pack your glasses with order form in a small box.
